    Default Tourist vis renewal -- Metrocentro

    Does anyone know whether the Migracion branch at Metrocentro in Managua renews 90-day tourist visas on-the-spot like it does at the main office, or keeps your passport and tells you to come back in a few days? It would be more convenient for me to go to the Metrocentro branch than the main office, but I am in a rush and need to get it done on-the-spot.

    I believe the Metro Center location does do on the spot, but I think there are certain hours. Someone here will know for sure, I think there are some old posts about that location as well. Will see if I can find them

    The 90 day extension is now 1500 cords.

    Yup, on the spot service. Go early as the line gets long quick and they take a long lunch break.

    Question for any of you in the know, I´ve been hearing conflicting reports. Now, lets say you are over your visa by say 1.5 months. Can you go to the immigration office, pay the fine there and get a day or two to get out of the country. I really dislike dealing with it at the border, they always seem to make such a big issue about it.

    I did that a couple of times but it has been a while.

    This involved going to Immigration Central in Managua a couple of days before flying out, with my passport plus photocopies of the principal pages and paying for the exit visa there, including the fine for overstaying my visa. I then had 72 hours to get out of the country.

    When I got to the airport a few days later, I pointed out the exit visa stamp in my passport when I passed through the checkpoint where they swipe it, and was waived through quickly.
